Fryderyk Chopin University of Music is not only a school, but also a concert hall. The University is involved in very animated concert activities. Concerts are both part of the process of education of young musicians and an outlet for the faculty’s artistic and scientific activity. The purpose of the concerts is to popularise the University’s achievements and to spread music among Warsaw’s music lovers. The University has regular Wednesday concerts — large symphony concerts, oratorios, recitals and chamber concerts, occasional student recitals and auditions and also student opera productions.
